The free videos help clarify what he's describing in the book.  I'm just afraid I'll have information overload if I buy a one year subscription and watch golf video's 24/7.  I always play my best when I'm not thinking about my swing and am in a groove.  I'm already feeling overwhelmed between this and monte's stuff.  I'm sure the $147 in annual subscription will help more than a new driver though!

Want to throw another shout out regarding "The Stock Tour Swing" book by, Tyler Ferrell.

I have been taking my time to read the book very throughly. One thing that I am very happy about is his explanation of what the body needs to do throughout the swing. My whole golfing life, I have been told things like, "Don't raise up on the backswing!" or "Lengthen your backswing".

Tyler goes into detail what your body is supposed to do every part of the swing. Drills are offered to reinforce each area. I do agree with him that you should skim the book first to get a general idea of the concepts he is teaching, then go back and look at certain areas in detail.

Wish a had this book many years ago. Check it out.

The one thing I do not like so much with Tyler's instruction is the Jackson Five move. I have great difficulty to slide backwards into the left hip and then to subsequently turn that hip out of the way. I prefer the lower body move of GG which makes it much easier for me to open up the hips.

My book arrived this week and is living up to expectations. However no book is going to beat working with a good coach.

Thanks for the recommendation. I like the approach of allowing you to be your own coach rather trying to fit you into a box.

About 60% through the book.  Definitely one of the better golf books I have read, but not really for the beginner.  Many great pieces of information and different kinds of explanations you don't hear much of elsewhere.  I can see how the videos are promoted as a necessary companion because as great as the text is in this book, it is the total opposite when it comes to the photos and diagrams.  90%+ of the graphics are absolutely horrid; really so bad to the point of inexcusable.  This is mainly why it is not a beginner book.  If you were somewhat new to golf and reading the text and trying to use the diagrams to gain better understanding...it's not happening.  The figures are so bad I pretty much stopped paying attention to them.

I wouldn't let that disappoint you. I think the Jackson 5 move is for people who are out of sequence and to tend to start the downswing with the torso/shoulders FIRST (instead of the hips). As mentioned earlier, the "caster" is the type of golfer that Tyler sees more often so the J5 move will get them used to starting the swing with the hips. I spent a lot of time on training the GG pivot and it's all about shallowing (as I am sure you know) so you are good to go! Keep that pivot, shallow, motorcycle, side bend, rotate and supinate to glory!!

The J5 move also helps with getting that all important tilt, lower body moving forward, and assisting the right shoulder during the downswing. This also helps with swallowing the club as the hips move forward and the upper body stays back the right shoulder doesn't have to come down as much. Now where is that Monte video....

He’s very graphic with his analogies. So swallowing the club would be a visual for the up and in through impact even though club head is down and out along with the slight backwards move during the brace and keeping the shaft up the left arm while maintaining neck tilts... all leading to a centripetal deep throating of the entire club.

Just gonna say this book is awesome! By far the best golf book I've ever read. Its more about just educating yourself than taking pieces and putting them into your own swing. It gives you the knowledge to really make better decisions when working on your swing. Highly recommend!

Just done reading it for the 1st time. It has some very nice illustrations on steep and shallow elements that most golfers need to know as well as how to understand your misses which was excellent.

I think it should be called the tour stock downswing because the setup and backswing portion almost nonexistent. I understand it’s not a step by step type of book but I don’t think you can write a “swing” book without a extensive section about the setup and backswing or at least reference another resource for those issues.

If anyone wants a cliff notes version of the downswing..top of the backswing with relaxed arms, bump hips toward the target while regaining flexion in the hips and bow the left wrist. When you get halfway down pull the left elbow to the target or the right elbow to your belly button.

This book changed my swing. I can now hit it straight and curve it high and low with great confidence.

His ideas and concept are brilliant.

But be aware, you need some basic knowledge. It is surely an advanced book.

He needs to update the illustrations or find an alternative publisher. Some of the prints are not good.

I just finally picked up a copy.  I concur with everyone else.  A great book for those of us that really want to fully understand our swing, and where and why it goes wrong when it does.  I do agree that it's probably best suited for intermediate to advanced players.  Not really a beginner book.

I sorta figured the name "The Stock Tour Swing" was enough of a heads up that it wasn't a book for beginners. =)
